Abstract

The analysis and design procedure of an antenna for a cw doppler radar system being developed for pilot warning of midair collision hazards is presented. The antenna consists of two vertical arrays of half- wavelength dipoles mounted near a circular conducting cylinder. Each array provides relatively uniform illumination (2 to 3 db) in the forward 180//0 angular segment of the horizontal plane and approximately plus or minus 10 to 15//0 coverage in the vertical plane.
